Michigan Assigned Claims Plan For No-Fault Benefits

Michigan Assigned Claims Lawsuit LawyersMichigan auto accident injury victims who did not have their own car insurance policy are often still eligible to receive no-fault insurance benefits. The Michigan Assigned Claims Plan accepts applications for personal injury protection benefits (PIP) made by a person who suffered accidental bodily injury arising out of the ownership, operation, maintenance, or use of a motor vehicle as a motor vehicle.

Claims under the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan can be made by vehicle occupants, pedestrians, and bicyclists. The driver or passenger of a motorcycle can also file a claim for benefits if the accident involved an uninsured motor vehicle (which was not another motorcycle). Claims are often made in cases involving hit and run accidents.

Which Insurance Company Is Responsible?

Many times it is difficult to determine which insurance company must pay the no-fault insurance claims after an auto accident. Factors that determine which insurance company is responsible for payment the benefits, include whether:

  • The injured was the driver or occupant of the vehicle
  • The injured person was pedestrian or bicyclist
  • The injury victim was the driver or passenger on a motorcycle
  • The accident involved a hit and run driver
  • The injured person was covered under any other policy auto insurance policy

Any person (whether a Michigan resident or not) who is injured in an accident in Michigan, either while riding in or being struck by an uninsured Michigan-registered vehicle, will be covered by no-fault benefits through the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan, if there is no other policy of no-fault insurance available to the injured person.

WARNING: Benefits are not available from Assigned Claims to the owner (registrant) of an uninsured car or motorcycle who was injured in an accident while driving or occupying his or her own vehicle or motorcycle. Drivers of stolen cars or motorcycles are not eligible for benefits.

When an injured person is entitled to receive no-fault benefits through the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan, an application for bodily injury benefits must be submitted within one year of the date of the auto accident. The application can be submitted to the address below or you can file a claim online:

Michigan No Fault Insurance Lawyer Review

Brian Woodward
michigan no fault insurance attorney"I am a quadriplegic as a result of a car accident and my insurance company denied me a portion of my insurance benefits. I contacted Daniel and he was able to get those benefits paid quickly for me. Daniel is a very caring and compassionate person. Even though he doesn't really know me he treated me as if I was one of his family and made me feel very comfortable. I knew from the first time that we spoke that he would give his all to resolve the situation with little regard for his personal benefit. I had all but given up when a friend recommended me to Mr. Buckfire and he was more than willing to go to work to get me when I rightly deserved. Alot in my life had been ripped away as a result of the car accident but Daniel was there to help me restore as much as possible. He even made sure that I was completely satisfied with the results."
